    Digital Marketing & PR Fundamentals Updated For Today Over the past four years, I’ve found myself referencing The New Rules of Marketing & PR more often than I ever imagined. It’s one of the few print books I keep in my office and on the shelf. I also often recommend the book to executives looking to get a clear and compelling understanding of the digital universe and how they can put it to work for their organization. Marketing and PR professionals will find the book refreshingly insightful. The book’s focus on strategies and tactics that work keep it hype-free and simple – which I like.The Fourth Edition has completely new and updated case studies, and a wonderfully compelling new section on Newsjacking (which I’m eager to embrace after reading the book.) There are interesting new insights into app development (including a chapter on Uber.) I particularly enjoyed David’s Instagram section and the new (and compelling) ideas to leverage Google Plus and Google Hangouts for my business.In short, there aren’t many books I recommend you own a paperback copy of (as opposed to an electronic edition) but this is one of them. You’ll find yourself referencing it for the next two years (or at least until David Meerman Scott releases the 5th edition.)

    Are you considering buying the 4th Edition of The New Rules of Marketing & PR? If you’re reading this, you’re probably considering buying the 4th edition of David Meerman Scott’s The New Rules of Marketing & PR.The are a couple of things you should bear in mind.One is that, as a leading thought leader, David Meerman Scott “walks the walk.” In contrast to a lot of “experts” who write about online marketing, the New Rules of Marketing & PR reflects original thinking, based on his career since 2002. David Meerman Scott practices what he preaches.As he tells his story in the Introduction, (which you can read by clicking the Look Inside! book cover image, above), David understands media from an insider perspective. He knows media from multiple perspectives. He knew how the press operated, and he knows how it operates today. This is especially evident in Chapter 23, Newsjacking, one of the new chapters.At one time, David controlled multi-million dollar corporate marketing budgets, but realized that, as Bob Dylan said, “the times they are a’changing.”What you get in the 4th edition of The New Rules of Marketing & PR is based on what worked for him in the early years of the previous decade. David pioneered the (at the time) revolutionary view of giving drafts of chapters of the first edition of his book away for free, before his book was published to great success. Over the years, he’s repeated and perfected the technique, to increasing success.Second, there’s the important element of refinement. Through the previous editions of The New Rules of Marketing & PR, David has been continuously refining and updating his ideas to reflect developing technology.The 4th edition is as up-to-date as Obama’s re-election, the mistakes that many corporations made last year following Hurricane Sandy, and what happened during the the SuperBowl “blackout” this year.In addition, since the first edition, David has been communicating–through his blog and e-mail–with owners and managers of a broad range of businesses, agencies, associations, and nonprofits. He’s listened to their stories and updated dozens of examples throughout the book.The 4th edition reflects a major rewrite, with over 70 pages of new material, including two new chapters reflecting the latest technology. You’ll learn about the latest online social media tools, and how you can use each to tell your story. You’ll also discovers how others are doing it, as well as ideas and tips for using each tool.Third, I continue to be impressed by how David Meerman Scott not only describes what he did, but he is a careful writer. He writes the way he speaks.As someone who has interviewed him several times since the first edition, I’m impressed by the way David can says a lot in a conversational tone, carefully choosing his words, and lacing them with examples and how-to tips. Such writing doesn’t come naturally. You have to work at it to get it right.Thus, the 4th edition of The New Rules of Marketing & PR is a “safe” book to buy, even if you’re familiar with the previous editions. Of course, if you’re new to David Meerman Scott and his story, you have a lot of pleasant reading ahead of you!

  3. Great tips, but the author is a little too self-promoting for my taste. I think it is great that he has done so well – obviously, or else I wouldn’t be reading this book. However, I KNOW he has done well, but he will say so at least every few pages. Nonetheless, I am picking up some great information.
